Demonstration, Inverness Printers' section

Inverness Printers taking part in a political demonstration outside the Inverness Courier Office.

In 1884, the House of Lords blocked Gladstone's Reform Bill which would extend the vote to another two million men. Demonstrations were held and in September around 20,000 workers marched through the streets of Inverness. The banners on the right of the photograph read "Liberal Legislation Working Class" and "Tory Legislation Working Class". The man on the left of the photograph, holding the horse, is James Barron, the Courier's editor.

The premises of Fraser and Co., Wholesale Grocers, can be seen next to the Courier Office.
